Cento Fire & Security Jobs and Linx International Group join forces to tackle skills shortage
Cento Fire & Security Jobs reinforces its commitment to reducing the skills shortage and announces partnership with Linx International Group to reskill ex military personnel and help them find an exciting new career in the security industry.
The skills shortage in the security sector is widely documented, with a lack of trained applicants compared to the needs and expectations of employers. It is difficult to find and recruit qualified staff, and the growth the industry is experiencing is only leading to increased demand for labour. One of the best ways of combatting this issue is to attract talented individuals from other sectors and equip them with the knowledge required to work in the security sector. Ex-military personnel have a reputation for demonstrating strong leadership, communication and analytical skills with high levels of self motivation and reliability.
Leading industry recruitment expert Cento Fire & Security Jobs together with the Linx International Group incorporating Tavcom, specialists in security systems training; have devised a scheme to introduce such talent into the security industry. Linx International will initially advise and where necessary retrain ex-military personnel and provide them with the knowledge and qualifications required for the security industry. Specialist recruitment consultants at Cento Fire & Security Jobs will then get their new career started by finding a suitable job, using their unrivalled industry insight and knowledge.
Commenting on the agreement, managing director of Cento Fire & Security Jobs Brett Ennals said “We are thrilled to be working with Tavcom – Linx International Group to introduce a fresh resource of talent into the security industry that ultimately benefits employers. As someone with a Ministry of Defence engineering apprenticeship, I know first-hand the value of training with such an establishment and moreover the immense amount of opportunities the training can provide for an individual. Furthermore, we have admired the skillsets of ex-military professionals for a long time so look forward to working with them in their transition from their military career and demonstrating to them the benefits of a career in the security sector.”
David Gill, Managing Director at Linx International Group said: “The Linx International Group’s Resettlement Division utilising our extensive accredited training programmes combined with Cento’s market knowledge and their outstanding reputation as a leading recruitment specialist, will offer those seeking to enter the security sector with a great opportunity to gain advice, the relevant training, qualifications and appropriate employment. Being ELCAS approved we are able to support service leavers seeking security management training, or for the more technically minded there is no better place to undertake a security systems course than via our Tavcom academy.”
